Now you mention it, that is nice loophole for me. Buy < 20 year players and have them come up via the YA.

I'll create some TM agents to see if anything comes up, thinks for the tip




OK, if you count like that I have only 6 "foreign" players on my roster - all others are drafted or promoted from YA. If I remeber correctly there are a few originally from your squad

Btw, nobody from this 6 players is that important - could very well reduced to 2 players next season.

Great come from behind victory for the Dragons. You represented the division well.


My team decided to keep things interesting the last two games winning by 3 and 5 points

I'm not looking forward to our game on Saturday! My QBs have thrown 10 interceptions in the last two games so I fear the gap will be much wider than last time!

My predictions will be back tomorrow!

Interesting, OL (or guys with high strength in generel) are hard to find for me in YA...


I just pulled a future OL?

Well, maybe it is because I never pick 18 year old ones

Not to burst your bubble, but for me OL are really hard to find period. for me the need at least 37 INT and 37 TW and 47 strength. I prefer teamwork be north of 40 but 37 is okay given you need at least 6 to 7 players on gameday. I think INT is often underrated when it comes to OL play. At least if my memory serves me correct from 20 seasons ago

40 plus TW and as close to 50 as possible. I dont think Int makes or breaks an OL, i think Agi does. Even more so for the DT/NT. Agi is by far the most underated skill in the game imho especially in the trenches.

He was the youngest available

@oakbark @kevinisking: I am not saying he's a perfect OL but in my opinion you should be able to get one good OL per season if you focus entirely on that position. ie you buy from TM /draft what you need in other positions.

Seeing that OL is really expensive / hard to buy I always thought it was a valid strategy. Until I blew up my team of course

Looking at schedule of unbeaten teams I have to say that Vicious Attack Dogs has a slightly harder schedule ahead of them...
